Rasmussen: 56% of Americans Favor Legalization

A new Rasmussen poll reveals that of 1,000 likely voters 56% favor legal marijuana.  When respondents were asked "Would you favor or oppose legalizing marijuana and regulating it in the similar manner to the way alcohol and tobacco cigarettes are regulated today?" only 36% responded negatively and 8% were undecided.
"Polling now consistently shows that more voters support legalizing and regulating marijuana than support continuing a failed prohibition approach," he said in a statement Tuesday. "Yet far too many politicians continue to act as if marijuana policy reform is some dangerous third rail they dare not touch. If the trends in public opinion continue in the direction they are going, the day is not far away when supporting a prohibition system that causes so much crime, violence and corruption is going to be seen as a serious political liability for those seeking support from younger and independent voters. Savvy forward-looking politicians are already beginning to see which way the wind is blowing." READ MORE>>>
This is fantastic news! Finally, people are starting to look at the issue truthfully and consider the facts
instead of the government talking points.

One day, I'd love to see a nation where I can grow or smoke cannabis if I CHOOSE to without facing any legal repercussions. It should be no different than if I chose to grow tobacco or brew my own beer.
